Good morning. Now, wake up.
New Blog Alert!
I want to announce that we'll be adding another photoblog to the SFDB blogroll. A local Miami photographer that goes by the Flickr name of dcvision2006 has started a gritty blog comprised of street photographs taken of the people and the places of Miami's underbelly. It's disturbing, it's real, it's fascinating, it's brand new and dcvision2006 is calling it, simply, The Street.
It's also unique, not only because of it's subject matter, but because of the Tumblr platform that is being used. I haven't seen this partuclar blogging platform being used anywhere else.
Anyway, check it out and see what you think.
SFDB welcomes The Street.
5 days until the election. I'll have a special announcement at lunchtime today concerning Election Night so you might want to drop in midday to see what's planned here at SFDB. In the meantime, here's your morning Sift.
A- Miami Bike Scene has the promotional flyer for the upcoming Bike Miami.
B- I'm a day late on this one but Cuban Home Cooking gives the recipe and instructions for Potaje de Lentejas (Lentil Soup).
C- Tilefortlauderdale leaves Sara in a nook in the 1500 block of Las Olas Boulevard.
Sara is in a little nook on the street in Las Olas .... the nook contains some kind of water pipes or something outside Vencor Hospital in the 1500 block of Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.I'm happy to inspire, Tilefortlauderdale.
While the stories you read on this blog are all just pretty much made up, for the most part, they come from somewhere. And this particular one was inspired by a few very intriguing blog posts I spotted this month, one on The South Florida Daily Blog .. and another on Coconut Grove Grapevine ... about the real working "Shadow People."
D- What says Miami more than a yellow Rolls parked on South Beach, from Miami Fever. And would you accept a menu from this young lady?
E- The Herald has morphed Barack into an unexciting white guy, according to Incertus.
F- Bark Bark Woof Woof takes a close look at the 1/2-hour Obama ad that aired last night.
One thing that was noticeable by its absence: any mention of his opponents. Mr. Obama never mentioned the name of John McCain, and he only obliquely referred to the Bush administration as the "last eight years." That's one of the hallmarks of a good ad campaign; act as if you are the only product of your kind on the market. Ad writers know that you're on shaky ground if you have to compare your product to Brand X, so don't give the consumer the chance to even subliminally be aware of the competition.
